BlueSnap, an all-in-one payment platform that helps B2B and B2C businesses increase sales and reduce costs based in Waltham, Massachusetts, strengthens its global market in Europe by opening a new regional headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.
Dublin was chosen by BlueSnap as the new headquarters for the European market because of its reputation as a global fintech centre of excellence, leading start-up accelerator programs, and leading technology innovation. The head office will play a major role in market development in the region.
Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap, on Thursday (11/2) last week said that the opening of a new head office in Dublin marks an important milestone for BlueSnap in its global expansion into European markets after Brexit took effect last January. Even so, BlueSnap still maintains its offices in London to manage the UK market.
To make the new office a success, BlueSnap appointed Eugene McCague, former managing partner and chairman (1999-2003) of Arthur Cox, Ireland’s leading corporate law firm, to become chairman of the company’s European operations.
McCague also served as chairman and senior partner at Arthur Cox from 2006-2013 before officially retiring in 2017. During a career of more than 35 years, McCague has helped big clients such as Aer Lingus, Bank of Ireland, and PaddyPower.
BlueSnap itself since being founded by Daniel Kleinberg and Tomer Herzog in March 2002 has grown rapidly with funding support totaling US$183 million from leading investors such as Great Hill Partners, Parthenon Capital Partners, Susquehanna Growth Equity, and Ralph Dangelmaier.
Based on information obtained from the company’s website, in addition to its hometown, Massachusetts, London and Ireland, BlueSnap also has representative offices in Vancouver (Canada), Herzliya (Israel) and Sydney (Australia).
